Extremely Close Lightning Strike

Occurred on October 20, 2018 / Sydney, New South Wales, Australia Info from Licensor: “I was filming as the storm over Sydney became more violent. Lightning bolts were hitting very close all around before one hit the building just a few feet away. My cat and I ducked for cover; swearing like a docker. It took me an hour to find him wedged between the wall and a chest of draws. Part of the chimney air vent just next to me was blown away which sent brick flying but was still standing, a job for the insurers to sort out.”
